In a world where stars can fade by age 25, it is great to review an album by a lady approaching her 70th birthday who has entertained and enlightened us for half a century. I believe that the second part of that accolade is the more important in assessing this diva of folk. Her songs always entertain but by making us think she achieves her greatest hold. - Nicky Rossiter, Rambles Magazine

Peggy Quotes 2

My husband, Marky, teaches maths to  a group of very intelligent Further A Level students (they are about 17 - 18 yrs old and those super-intelligent whizz-kid types).  Yesterday they were getting a bit overloaded and fraught with the 'hard sums' so he played them the One Plus One video as a bit of a breather! They loved it!  Marky said all the frowns disappeared and they were all smiling and ready to go at the complex numbers again!

The Ballad of Jimmy Massey Notes

TIMELY #02 - JIMMY MASSEY


Jimmy Massey lives in Waynesville, North Carolina, about 40 miles north of Asheville. He was a Marine of 12 years standing who, after 4 months in Iraq, went to his lieutenant and told him he couldn't do what was required of him in this particular line of duty. It's a long story, and a good one, and he is now back in North Carolina recuperating and studying how we got to where we are as a country and where we're going and his part in it. He travels around the country talking about his experiences and what he's learned. I interviewed him and have made a song for and about him. I've made a quick interim CD of the song and he carries it on his tours. He has written a book, Cowboys from Hell, to appear in bookstores in September. A film-script is being written based on that book. Enter his name on Google and discover what happens to you when you do what Staff-Sergeant Jimmy Massey has done: 173,000 items (some of them obviously not about this Jimmy Massey), many of which are frightening slanders, threats, contradictions, the kind of thing that happens when your version of what happened to you isn't accepted by horn-blowers for the establishment. Be one of those who give him and his wife Jackie support and encouragement. Send him an e.mail: cowboynpeach@hotmail.com.
